Additionally, the movie portrays the class controversies in the beginning of 20th century. Rose DeWitt Bukater is from a family that has lost its wealth but attempts to demonstrate their belonging to the upper class. Rose’s marriage with Caledon “Cal” Hockley is supposed to solve all their problems and her feelings are not taken into account at all. He belongs to the same class as her family so this relationship is supported while her love with Jack is forbidden as he is from different social group.
The contrast between the first and the third class is evident. The public in the third class is much more open and friendly. The people care less about one’s possessions, family relations, etc. They treat people on the basis of their deeds. Rose is easily accepted in the community; she enjoys the dancing, and can truly relax for the first time in her life. So Titanic remains one of the most success movies of all times. It has won eleven Academy Awards, among which the Best Picture of the year. The film was translated in many languages and is still very popular.
